Why can flow see only some of my Outlook calendars?

i'm trying to build a flow thats creates meeting times in our teams calendars - using a manual trigger and the outlook create event action i can see SOME of my calendars, mine and one of our shared calendars for the team, but i cannot see others - these others are set up in the same way, i have the very same permissions, yet they arent showing up in the flow drop down box to chose from. why is that?

Re: Why can flow see only some of my Outlook calendars?

Hi @StephenM,


Could you choose a shared calendar from the Calendar id field of "Create event (V1)" action?

Further, do you want to choose other custom calendars within Calendar id field of "Create event (V1)" action?


I have made a test on my side and I could not choose a shared Outlook calendar within Calendar id field of "Create event (V1)" action. The available Outlook Calendars show up as below:13.JPG


I afraid that there is no way to choose a custom calendar within "Create event (V1)" action of Outlook connector in Microsoft Flow currently. If you would like this feature to be added in Microsoft Flow, please submit an idea to Flow Ideas Forum:


In addition, you could consider take a try to get all available Outlook calendars with the "Get calendars" action:14.JPG

Is this still an issue? I was able to do it before by giving permission to the calendar and afterwards accepting the email that was send to the recipient. However this doesn't seem to work anymore?
